Wins by the men’s first and second teams on Good Friday provided the highlights of an Easter Weekend for Cambridge FC.
Cambridge’s championship side lost 2-0 to a youthful Hamilton Wanderers at John Kerkhof Park on Saturday.
The home side applied early pressure and could have gone ahead when Jason Szabo found the net only to have his effort ruled offside (see following video).
Wanderers scored late in the half and then added another after the interval to take the league points.
